Russian delegation visits Bangladesh to discuss the main construction phase of Rooppur plant

A high power delegation from Russia visited Bangladesh last week to discuss the main construction phase, including preparations for “first concrete” of Rooppur NPP.

Headed by Nikolai Spasskiy, Deputy Director General of Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation -ROSATOM, the delegation comprised Valery Limarenko, CEO of АSE Group of Companies (general contractor for the Rooppur project) and Alexei Ferapontov, Deputy Chairman of Rostechnadzor, the Russian Federal Service for Ecological, Technological and Nuclear Supervision.

The Russian delegation had talks with Architect Yeafesh Osman, Minister for Science and Technology, Dr. Kamal Abdul Naser Chowdhury, Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister, and Abul Kalam Azad, Chief Coordinator for SDG affairs at the Prime Minister’s Office.

Bilateral meetings focused on various practical issues related to the beginning of main construction phase of Rooppur NPP, said a press release.

Senior officials of the Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission (BAEC) and Bangladesh Atomic Energy Regulatory Authority (BAERA) were also present at the meetings.

The Russian delegation also visited the Rooppur NPP construction site where they held a technical meeting with the Bangladesh side, including the representatives of BAERA.

It may be mentioned here that works for the preparatory phase of the Rooppur NPP is nearing completion and the main construction is expected to begin in the second half of the current year.

First of two units is expected to go into operation in 2023, the second–in 2024. The design of the innovative Generation 3+ power unit, which will be installed on Rooppur NPP includes the most powerful type of VVER-1200 reactor, as well as a high-speed turbine specially designed for new-generation NPPs.

It provides the highest level of operational safety and fully meets all post-Fukushima requirements strictly set by the IAEA.
